Nearly 100 years ago, El Charro became more than a restaurant, it became a staple of Tucson. Carlotta Flores' family started the cafe back in the 1920s.

In 2020, she adapted to COVID by teaming up with a bread maker to create a grab-and-go only restaurant called Barrio Charro.

The family runs three locations of El Charro Cafe, plus Barrio Charro, Charro Steak & Del Rey and Charro Vida.
